It features two lasers with different wavelengths in one device: one that targets pigmentation and sun damage and another that goes deeper to target wrinkles, texture, and acne scarring.
Fraxel DUAL works better than regular Fraxel and its competitors because it utilizes two wavelengths based on individual needs for the best results. This treatment repairs, refines and restores the skin by tightening and toning, leaving skin with improved color consistency and a youthful elasticity.
Fraxel DUAL works using a method that resurfaces the skin with by targeting a certain percentage (fraction) of the skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. This technique safeguards the healthy surrounding tissue during the procedure by treating only certain columns of skin tissue, promoting very rapid healing.
Patients will enjoy smoother, more evenly toned, tighter skin, smaller pores and overall younger looking appearance.
